Roland Gunslinger Hi Christoph!
Sorry, ich habe deinen Kommentar irgendwie komplett übersehen
Das Projekt hatte ein bisschen Pause wegen dem F-14 GB... Aber jetzt hoffe ich, dass ich die Maschine zeitnah fertig bekomme
Munkyslut That film is bloody brilliant! The cracking face is just perfecto what fantastic animation!
Thanks for sharing Nathan
Oh yeah I'm watching the build too

Rui S Big one. I'm in.
@Nathan Crazy vid. Thx for sharing

Roland Gunslinger Welcome mates, nice to have you abord
Steve Harris was my greatest „idol" and influence as a Bass player (long time ago). So, the band has been with me my whole life, even if I don't like all the albums anymore, they never actually produced anything really „bad" (IMHO). This doesn't apply to many bands.
Nathan, thx for sharing this video. The collision scene would make a cool dio. Greg where are you?
Daniel Oh, didnt know you were already exploring the world of big scale wwII props Taking a seat here!
Cockpit looks amazing are these all kit parts?

Rui S Beautiful paintjob on the cockpit. Excellent weathering

Munkyslut Roland I'm with you on the technical ability of Mr Harris, I saw them at the Gentng Arena a couple of years ago & they were perfect
I've been a big Maiden fan since the 80' when Paul Dianno was vocalist, brilliant Brit band
I have some props that I still want to build. Since I live in the home of the BF 109, some 109s and 262s are of course also planned.
The large parts are better for my eyes and fingers
As a Briton, it is practically a civic duty to attend a Maiden concert

Slavo Hazucha Well I was a kid in the 80´s, but already aware of the good stuff - Maiden, Motörhead & co... even some odd German stuff like KREATOR & SODOM - not sure if that would be a topic for a 109 or 262...

Roland Gunslinger I think there were a couple of planes on the "agent orange" album cover. But don't know exactly what that was anymore. Certainly not a "Messerschmitt"
Complete OOB build
The fit is "good". Of course, after the Tamiya kit, a little "descent"
The details (especially the rivets/panel lines) are great IMHO. But I can't say if it's accurate. I'm absolutely no Spitfire expert.

Roland Gunslinger Applied a testshot of my RAF Sky mix. IMHO the AKSky is to„greenish" so i added some superior blue and RAF Gray.

Munkyslut Looks good!
To be honest every time I try & replicate Sky it comes out a different shade, I just go with what looks the best rather than accuracy.
Now to the really difficult one - if the model looks better than the base = obviously not advisable in this situation... If the base is better than the model = not cool & dangerous too, when your wife provides such a top spec part, you better have to perform...! A special degree of harmony seems to be needed here...
@Nathan These colors are a godsend for me. No clogging and forgiving of any kind of wrong dilution or pressure. You can basically dilute it with anything you have standing around.
@Slavo The plan is for the plane to be pretty weathered. Therefore, the paint should really not look new. After I recently fell in love with oil paints, it should now be a good playground for weathering.
@Rui/Munkyslut To be honest, I'm usually not a big fan of this technique, but in this case it is very useful. With jets in particular, I now prefer postshading. It always depends on the desired effect. But that's just my opinion

Rui S @ Roland, Well it seems to me that it is more efective in the darker green, than with the Brown???
5. September, 13:20
Andy Ball Great effects with that pre-shaded marbling
@Rui Yes, it actually looks like this in the picture. But that's because I didn't have good lighting for the picture. The brown is lighter than the green and therefore reflects more strongly. I took another photo without the light: the effect can already be seen. Of course you can also marble with different colors or, as i prefer, post-shading later.

Fabio Cannova Hi Roland, it's only marbling effects or you added some post-shading? Great job!!
